nigrep - search for a regular expression in the NetInfo hierarchy SYNOPSIS
nigrep expression [ -t ] domain [ directory ... ] DESCRIPTION
nigrep searches through the specified domain argument for a regular expression. It searches the domain's directory hierarchy depth-first starting from the root directory. It can also start from each directory specified on the command line. The domain argument can be specified as an absolute or relative domain name. The domain argument can be specified as a network address or hostname and tag if preceded by the -t option. On output, nigrep prints the directory ID number of the directory which contains the regular expression, and the property key and values where it was found. A line is printed for each property that contains the regular expression. OPTIONS
-t Specify domain as a network address or hostname and tag. EXAMPLES
% nigrep '[Nn]et' / % nigrep '[Nn]et' -t % nigrep '192.[0-9]+.172' -t astra/network /machines % nigrep '/Net/server.*/Users' .. /users /mounts SEE ALSO

niload - load text or flat-file-format data into NetInfo SYNOPSIS
niload [ -v ] [ -d ] [ -m ] [ -p ] [ -t ] { -r directory | format } domain DESCRIPTION
niload loads information from standard input into the given NetInfo domain. If format is specified, the input is interpreted according to the flat-file file format of the same name. The allowed values for format are aliases, bootparams, bootptab, exports, fstab, group, hosts, networks, passwd, printcap, protocols, rpc, and services. If -r directory is specified instead of a flat-file file format, the input is interpreted as "raw" NetInfo data, as generated by nidump -r, and loaded into directory. Note that this operation will delete and replace the entire NetInfo subtree at the specified directory. Any existing records in this subtree will be lost. niload overwrites entries in the existing directory with those given in the input. Entries that are in the directory aren't deleted if they don't exist in the input, unless the -d option is specified. niload must be run as superuser on the master NetInfo server for the given domain, unless one specifies the -p option, which allows one to run from anywhere in the network. OPTIONS
-v Verbose. Prints details of records as they are updated (flat-file formats only). -d Delete entries which are in the directory, but not in the input. -m Merge properties and values. Existing properties will be preserved in the database if they are not present in the input. For exam- ple, if a user record has a "picture" property, loading a passwd-format record for this user will preserve the property. Property values are also merged. -p Prompt for the root password of the given domain so that one can run from other locations in the network besides the master. -t Interpret the domain as a tagged domain. For example, "trotter/network" refers to the database tagged "network" on the machine "trotter". The machine name can be an actual name or an IP address. -r Load entries in "raw" format, as generated by nidump -r. The first argument should be the path of a NetInfo directory into which the information is loaded. Since the input often specifies properties (including "name") at its topmost level, the directory you specify may be renamed as a result of this operation. If the directory you specify does not exist, it will be created. EXAMPLES
"niload passwd . < /etc/passwd" loads the local /etc/passwd file into the local NetInfo database. "niload -d -r /locations ." replaces the contents of /locations in the local domain with input given in nidump "raw" format. SEE ALSO
